A quick how to:
For those (like me) on the $15 plan with limited outgoing minutes.
This is how to check your voicemail for free and save your outgoing minutes.
It's also beneficial for those that travel to other countries and need to keep in touch with home.
Download the TEXTNOW APP to your phone.
TEXTNOW gives you:
Once you have the app downloaded put it somewhere to your liking.
Open the app and sign-up.
Then due setup. (Basically a few permissions)
Then you're brought to pick a phone number.
You can select don't use my location if you want to try to find a specific area code for your textnow number.
You're then provided with numbers to choose and you're ready to go.
HOW TO CALL YOUR VOICEMAIL TO SAVE MINUTE'S.
In the app, on right side press the call button.
Dial Your Area code - 580 - 4001
It will say. "To access your voicemail enter your 10 digit number and press star * when your voicemail message starts to play".
So enter your real cell number. When you hear your voicemail message start to play. Press star. Enter your voicemail password. Done!
You're now successfully listening to your voicemails for free and saving your minutes. 🙂
@Jb456 Great how to! For people like me though, no one calls and I don't recall ever getting a voicemail lol.
